Flashcard Content Overview

When we talk about personal pronouns, we're talking about words like we and we're. Simply put, personal pronouns are substitutes for nouns. Without personal pronouns, you would never be able to refer to yourself as I or me. It would be quite awkward to constantly refer to yourself in the third person by your name! Personal pronouns help us communicate meaning in both speech and writing, without having to use the same noun repeatedly. This flashcard set will help you better understand the different types of personal pronouns, as well as when and how to use them.
